Condo Rentals on St John: Vacation Units

Condo rentals on St John offer you a great alternative to traditional hotels or inns.

I've always liked the "home away from home" feel that you get when vacationing in a good condo.

You also get the advantage of a well-equipped kitchen, which is a great feature when you want an alternative to eating in restaurants all the time. What's more, you usually have more privacy in a condo rental than you do at a traditional hotel, inn, or guesthouse.

You'll find several choices in condo rentals on St John. Complexes range from basic, comfortable units to posh, luxurious "near-resorts".

Many of the condo rentals are in and around Cruz Bay, others scattered around the island.

All rates quoted are for the high-season. Low-season rates will generally be 60% to 75% of high-season. Remember to add 8% hotel tax and 10% service charge to the price.

Now, let's look at some choices in St John condo rentals.

Gallows Point Resort is probably the most luxurious of St John's condo properties. It's set on around thirty acres of lushly landscaped grounds overlooking Cruz Bay, which is just a short walk down the hill.

The complex consists of 14 individually-owned condominiums, each of which contains four one-bedroom suites. Each suite has kitchen facilities and private terrace with water views.

The resort has a pool and restaurant on site as well as a small beach. A flock of peacocks wanders the grounds.

High-season rates start at around $400 a day.
